For the recent Data for a Cause challenge we worked with Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) to visualize global patterns of terrorism and peace. I am incredibly proud to announce the winners!
The Institute for Economics and Peace is the world’s leading think tank dedicated to developing metrics to analyze peace and to quantify its economic value. It does this by developing global and national indices, calculating the economic cost of violence, analyzing country level risk and understanding positive peace.
The goal of the competition was to tell a story using Global Peace Index and Global Terrorism Index indicators.

With 21 data visualizations, it was the toughest competition to date. Thanks to everyone who spent time digging, digesting and brainstorming on what has been a truly bumper crop of dataviz.
"All of the other entries were excellent, in particular the way they all told the story of a particular index in a new and innovative way." - IEP.
Institute for Economics and Peace will be writing an article and embedding the entries on their website!
